>> john: i think this president is afraid of using executive orders. >> stephanie: how is he going to do that with a budget? >> john: with a budget? i didn't say with a budget. >> stephanie: i'm talking about with this particular situation. >> john: if he's guilty of overplaying his hand, they're going to use this to bludgeon him for the next year and a half. if things don't go bad because of the cuts, he got caught in a fib. he said the folks who work in the capitol will get pay cuts starting monday. it's not true. they're using it to bludgeon him this morning. >> stephanie: that makes it entirely his fault. >> john: no but they're going to use that to completely hit this president so hard and say the sequester wasn't a big deal and when the actual cuts happen and eight of the top ten states to be hurt by the sequester will be red states, they'll turn around blame it on the black guy. you know they will. >> i think you're right john. [ ♪ battle hymn of republic ♪ ] >> stephanie: let's go to ezra
klein. ezra klein writes file this under jonathan tate is right. my col sum about the carbon comically poor lines of communication between the white house and the hill. a respected republican legislator thought it would be a game changer for president obama to say he would be open to cut cpi. the only problem, obama has said he's open to change cpi as part of a budget deal and this isn't one of the times when the admission was in private. we're going off his web site. it is in bold type. they had no idea that beam made concession. if they could inform him of this budget offer, he would come up with something. the taxes are awful. they can't trust obama to carry them out or something. if you saw boehner yesterday on "meet the press" -- >> john: what a lying sack of crap stephanie. here's the thing -- >> stephanie: let me finish because i think this is really
important because again the mainstream media gets sucked into this. technically, obama did move first on spending. obama signed into law a set of bills that cut $1.8 trillion from discretionary spending including no tax increases at all. one of the bills the budget control act gave us the sequester so you could argue they included closer to $3 trillion in spending cuts without a single tax increase. it didn't seem to move trust. so far the republicans haven't proposed any further tax increases but obama has proposed quite a few spending cuts including medicare. >> john: and raising the medicare age. >> stephanie: the bottom line is republicans won't agree to further tax increases so there's no deal to be had. he goes on to say the truth comes out. republicans won't make a deal that includes further taxes. they want to get the white house to implement their agenda in return for nothing. there's no deal even if obama agrees to demands there is no deal because republicans don't want to make a deal that
includes taxes no matter what they get in return for it. the interesting question is whether the possibility of a government shutdown, a debt ceiling breach or the pressure of the sequester's cuts will, in the coming months break one side or the other but as long as the g.o.p.'s position is they won't compromise, there won't be a compromise. ezra klein is nailing it. >> or as you call him -- >> erza klein. >> john: we're allowed to be disappointed in the president for saying stuff that might come back to haunt him. >> stephanie: i don't think he ever thought this would happen. >> john: i don't think he thought this would happen. i thought he thought lucy was going to bet him kick the ball this time. this is about raising the debt ceiling. they did for ronald reagan for a total of 189% increase. they did it for george bush over ten times. >> stephanie: boner -- the idea of the president. john, excuse me. the president didn't want to be inconvenienced by the entire economy of the united states
crashing down because we default? the way david gregory -- he got a few questions in, john but the way he let him spin it was incredible. >> john: i agree. >> i think you need to switch to abc's "this week with george stephanopoulos." >> watch bob schieffer. >> that's a little more soothing. [ ♪ hypnotic ♪ ] >> stephanie: okay. >> john: if i was david gregory's wife, i would cheat on the man because he doesn't ask follow-up questions. it was so disgusting it was john boehner who pushed this sequester through the house. john boehner who twisted so many republican arms so they would agree to vote for the sequester and now he's blaming the whole thing on the president. i almost think they launched it as a trap for the president. >> stephanie: gotta take a break. 18 minutes after the hour. we continue fridays with fuglesang on "the stephanie miller show." >> more of our share of the negativism. >> announcer: it's "the stephanie miller show."

he does this weird lizard thing with his tongue. >> it is the president's idea. >> that's despicable! >> stephanie: play some. it was just very distinct yesterday on "meet the press." the lizard tongue and the lisp. here we go. >> as i told the president once again yesterday, we all know what the problem is. we've got -- >> a plaque guy in the white house. >> that's not what he said, jim. >> stephanie: jim's impressions are so good, people think that's what they said. >> sylvester. >> not the gay one. >> stephanie: you little scamp you. >> i think it was cotton mouth. cigarettes and bourbon.

[ crickets chirping ] >> john: can we talk about how dishonest that is? that the president got his tax hike. there were no tax hikes. tax hikes are still lower than they were when president bush took office. over 80% -- he's trying to close
tax loopholes the same thing romney ran on. they're lying about obama again. >> stephanie: he used the same condescending tone that he does about the president with david gregory. he was like david now david! be listen to me. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: it was a very pronounced lisp yesterday. >> this discussion about revenue, in my view, is over. it is about taking it on the spending problem here in washington. >> there is no spending problem. >> there is no spending problem. >> there is no spending problem. [ ♪ hypnotic ♪ ] >> stephanie: i'm sorry. there's no place like the house. the other thing i noticed -- [ ♪ "jeopardy" theme ♪ ] you know what's weird about house speakers or leaders? what do i notice on "meet the press"? because it was a long shot of him and david gregory sitting there? he has teeny, tiny feet about tom delay. something about republican leaders -- his feet are --
>> they're size six feet. >> stephanie: his feet are too small for his large body. >> it makes him look like a bowling pin. >> stephanie: that's why they were seated. he would fall over. >> john: that means nothing. i think small feet means nothing. don't read into that at all. i bet my size 13 shoes on it. >> are you really size 13? >> i am. >> stephanie: no wonder you have such a large baby. lee in las vegas you're on "the stephanie miller show." >> caller: hi, steph. i think you're great. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: i want to let you know i think john boner everything that comes out of his false is -- comes out of his mouth is false. why does this guy constantly lie? he lies. he said that president obama doesn't put anything on the table. he doesn't say anything. he doesn't do this. he doesn't do that. meanwhile, everything he tries to do, they say no to. >> stephanie: did you see how -- did you see what i was talking about lee.
he said the president didn't want to be inconvenienced with another vote on the debt ceiling because for the first time in history, we're taking the debt ceiling a hostage in our country because the president actually cared about the country and you didn't. >> he's doing what the country wants, stephanie. that's what he ran on. he wants to close some tax loopholes for the extraordinarily rich. 3/4 of a million jobs to be lost and they're laughing about it saying oh, my god if they didn't lose it in the first day -- he said it will take two or three weeks for it to go into effect. they don't listen. >> stephanie: they're just playing gotcha with things. and i do think lee the president didn't think this was going to happen. that was the gotcha tape that the sequester isn't going to happen. >> caller: gregory is too soft. they need somebody like you steph. >> stephanie: that's right.
i just lost the job just like that to dade gregory. >> john: it was you and him right? [ applause ] >> i like how he said either you or your staff. what? >> stephanie: what? >> no. >> stephanie: he did actually -- john, he did ask things that resembled questions but then he lets it go. he lets boner lie and then it's like okay. >> john: he asks a tough question. boehner dodges it. he asks another question and boehner dodges it. he drops it. even if you're frustrated with the president if he happened to trust the republicans the guys lied. david gregory didn't hold their feet to the fire. >> stephanie: right back after this break on "the stephanie miller show." one thing viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. i think the audience gets that i actually mean it. michael shure: this show is about being up to date so a lot of my work happens by doing the

[ laughter ] >> mitt romney showed his real self on that video. >> stephanie: that was the problem with the campaign. too much of mitt romney. >> it is the media's fault that romney called it a tax and free stuff in the same speech. >> stephanie: they didn't let
mitt be mitt. no, we got it. we saw him! we saw the real mitt. >> 47% of moochers. >> john: they made mitt act far more to the right than he was comfortable being for months and months. >> do you think the two of you contributed to this image which the other side made up that you were so wealthy that you were somehow out of touch with the average american? >> you know, that's a reality that you know, you can't change. we are who we are. the thing that was frustrating to me is that people didn't really get to know mitt for who he was. >> oh, yeah, we did. >> stephanie: we got it. we're all good. >> cell phone video. all you need to know. >> stephanie: mitt romney says it kills him he's not president. but he does not blame super storm sandy new jersey governor chris christie on his way to his loss to president obama except his failure to connect with voters. >> the media is so unfair. >> john: when you consider the

obama. >> unemployment would be in triple digits. >> john: which is why they agreed to a sequestration because they thought they would be dealing with that. there are republicans who feel bad about the sequestration. >> both of them, i'm sure. >> stephanie: corky in rochester. you're on with john. hi corky. >> caller: steph i gotta talk you guys off the ledge. >> stephanie: okay. >> caller: barack obama's doing the same thing he did to romney. proceed, mr. boehner. because -- >> stephanie: please, proceed. >> caller: half those cuts and the sequester come from the military spending. now, who's the biggest republican donors to campaigns? it's the military contractors. and there's only about 10 or 12 companies. so when they start losing $42 billion in expenditures -- >> stephanie: yep -- >> caller: they're going to see right in those guys and they're going to come begging to president obama please get us out of this.

president for the sequester. i'm blaming the republicans far more. far more for the president. because if they had raised the debt ceiling like they did for bush and reagan, this wouldn't have happened. i don't think the president trusting them that they were going to work with him. he made mistake before. >> stephanie: go ahead mark. >> caller: you're saying a hostage negotiator negotiating with a criminal who's got a gun on a hostage and says look, give me some time. i'll get. >> plane so you can get to cuba, just don't shoot the hostage. you can do what you have to do. he tries to give a pregnant pause so you can stop and talk sense into him. when the guy says at the end sorry, there's no plane. i'm going to shoot her and he shoots her in the leg. you say it is the hostage negotiator's fault. >> john: i didn't say it was his fault. >> caller: even in a small measure, it is not his fault. >> stephanie: mark i agree with you and somebody made the -- i forget which writer it was, if you heard about it.

the two party system saying we need us a austerity so they pay for the sins and gluttony of the upper class. it is easy to get cynical. it feels like the republicans and democrats are paying good cop bad cop when the working class always pays. at the end of the day, there is no doubt the g.o.p. is to blame for all of this. i think the president made a mistake when -- and a lot of people agree, when he said last week this was going to cause pay cuts. when we saw the white house start walking back on the threats of dire consequence -- >> stephanie: mark, he never said it was going to be an apocalypse. >> he never said the sky was falling. good people will feel this and it is unnecessary. >> john: they will feel it. >> caller: right. but the republicans tried to make it sound like he was saying the sky was falling. he was giving. >> real definition of what some people are going to feel. when you tell a waitress -- >> john: his entire cabinet was, too. >> caller: when you tell a waitress you're going to lose your tips. do you want to see people lose

entitlement reform than let the cuts go through. a caucus of common sense. i will keep reaching out to them to fix this for good. he said i'm not a dictator. i'm the president. he cannot force republicans in congress to do the right thing. cuts will cost us jobs and both sites need to be able to compromise. the president yesterday. >> obama: many middle class families will have their lives disrupted in significant ways. >> john: mm-hmm. >> stephanie: let's go to barrett in indiana. you're on with john. hi barrett. >> caller: hi. i would like to reframe this whole discussion. i want to close the loopholes and the corporate giveaways as entitlements as well. >> john: thank you. >> caller: as for the 1% should be paying just as much as we the 99%. let them pay 50% toward it and let the 99% pay toward the 50% of it. and that's all i have to say. >> stephanie: yep. thank you barry.

heads manage the cuts in a more targeted way and less impacted by doing so. things like layoffs cutbacks and uptick in the unemployment line airports, generate media attention. ultimately affect the polls in a way that republicans take notice. then it pushes them back into negotiations and they come up with a short-term fix. the third possibility and this is not likely, we finally get that grand bargain. that deals with both tax reform and entitlement reform and that cancels out the sequester but of course, we've been there before to no avail. now, that pope benedict xvi has retired, the cardinals have the task of picking a new pope. today, they'll meet for their first gathering. the cardinals have to select a kate for the conclave. they have other business at hand first including talking about several issues that plague the catholic church including the on-going sex abuse scandal and financial mismanagement. we're back with more show after the break. stay with us.

friends and saying stuff about them. so junior high. he couldn't really debate in real time and so then he spent the next days trashing the guy behind his back, you know, he compared him to a klan member going after this crazy you know suggesting a lot of the islamophobia stuff. it was disgraceful because he couldn't -- i think he knew he sort of looked bad and so then he had to scramble. it was very juvenile, i thought. >> stephanie: i love your thing about the sequestrations. is this the worst message since new coke? g.o.p. is awful and it is all obama's fault. i was going crazy. the chiron on "meet the press" was are both sides equally to blame for the sequestration? >> of course they are. why does beltway press have to ask that? look at "new york times" column today, headline, obama's fault. i tweeted we should start a
master list of every pundit who writes a column attacking obama for failing to be able to change the republican behavior. i mean that's what it comes down to. after five years of just this radical obstructionism. they're still committed to this narrative that bipartisan -- there is no bipartisan cooperation because one side is to blame. that's obama's fault. bipartisan by definition is two sides coming together and compromising but if one side decides -- ep -- republicans decide they're not going to, let's blame obama. >> stephanie: i was talking about ezra klein's piece in "the washington post." it is amazing. that's where you and i get so irritated with the mainstream press falls down. it is like the president has compromised. he has put forward stuff. all of this stuff. the press pretends hasn't happened. both sides can't come together. right. >> sam stein had a good point --
piece in "the huffington post" saying there's this sort of mythology of the centrist pun crits and all of the pundits you know, wring their hands why can't these people come together. why aren't there leaders on both sides who can meet in the middle. why can't centrix work? as he points out it doesn't work for sequestration because they have to -- if they were to blame republicans, they would have to admit that there's one side that refuses to come to the middle. they would have to admit that obama's the one who's reached out and put numerous -- >> stephanie: cuts. >> on the table and things. so it sort of mucks up their their at this but they want to stick with it. they still want to blame both sides so they just sort of rewrite the story and they ignore what obama has done and what republicans have done. they stick to their mantra. why can't both sides come together when there is one side that refuses. here's the frustrating thing
that drives us crazy. it has been five years! this has been telegraphed from day one. >> stephanie: why won't the president leave by getting out of the way? >> obama is a centrist so by definition, it is the republicans who are causing this >> you know, this whole idea of you know, attacking the president for not being able to change the opposition's behavior. where were the columns attacking w bush for not being able to get tom daschle to change his behavior in the early part of george bush's first term when the allegation was democrats were obstructing and standing in the way of the republican agenda. we've never seen this sort of onslaught where the pundits blame the president for his inability to get the other side to change its mind. we've never seen it because it doesn't make any sense. >> stephanie: meanwhile in right-wing world a liberal obama-loving media. all right. let's dive into the right-wing world. see what's doing. here we go.
rush limbaugh. >> i've never seen this kind of self-absorption. it is uncanny. >> stephanie: look in the mirror. >> the president enjoys, folks reciting the kind of pain americans are going to feel. so we're getting the opposite of leadership. there is no real concern for people and their lives. that's feigned. >> stephanie: wow. that's feign concern. rush's concern for you is real, of course. [ laughter ] >> it must be wonderful to be able to just sort of pierce through, be able to read motivation. obama spent the whole last week talking about the pain this was going to cause but voila! rush limbaugh will tell us, he's not really concerned, you know, it is all an act. a professional actor by trade. maybe he has some insight. >> stephanie: mike huckabee on the fox news. >> it is interesting because you
know to compare obama and nixon, because of the lack of transparency. [ scooby-doo's "huh?" ] because of the fact that they're both kind of creating these enemies lists and going after and targeting reporters they don't like. but there's one big difference. all of the things aside -- watergate cover-up, nixon was a pretty effective president. he got things done. the difference is president obama has not been an effective president. he can't work with congress. he can't even get his own party for the most part, other than obamacare, his signature issue which is collapsing the economy jobs. it is really an insult to richard nixon to make the comparison. >> stephanie: he's just like nixon only worse. wow! >> you need a scorecard to keep track of all of the great misinformation and lies and things like that. obama can't get anything through congress because he can't get democrats -- oh, by the way you can't get anything through
congress because he needs 60 plus votes. let's pretend that doesn't exist. of course, you know, the enemies list, he's going after reporters and you know, there's this mob running the white house. that, of course, all came from -- >> the wouldn't be -- bob woodward, exactly the same as watergate. >> stephanie: did you see frank rich's tweet? are woodward's antics an effort to deflect from his anniversary to not report the wamd hoax. >> poor bob. that was such an awful week for him. it really pulled back the curtain. then the way he dealt with it, you know, he's saying oh, i never used the word threat. i wasn't complaining. oh boy. >> stephanie: oh boy. >> what exactly were you doing on cnn last week, went before the cameras to complain. that whole thing was -- you know, it tied into this right wing fantasy of this chicago thug life and how they're out to
break knuckles and things like that but then when we actually read the e-mails you know, the whole thing fell apart. >> stephanie: sperling o was on "meet the press." he's like this overly polite accountant. you're going oh, yeah, i can see where he's almost like tony soprano. you would be terrified of an e-mail from him. brad blakeman on the fox news. >> the president says he will preserve protect and defend america. at the time of sequester, the president should have come on television, tell the american people, regardless who is to blame, i will assure you as president, i will cause as much and at least disruption to the america people as possible. instead, he's instructed his government to inflict as much pain as possible. >> what? no! >> stephanie: excuse me? >> i'm not sure he understands how the whole thing works here. it is not like the white house has an a la carte menu with the
sequestration. >> here's the people i want to cause pain. >> stephanie: let me turn it up to 11. >> they're going to pick and choose. you saw piece of that. there were certainly claims that this was all -- you know, a long ago but hatched plan by obama to eviscerate the military and this is all done by design. he knew it was going to happen and this is how he -- you know, again, that's not how this thing was -- came together. and you know, they both -- both sides agreed they would be the cuts. he doesn't have any -- he's not picking and choosing here. >> stephanie: eric boehlert remains in the sidecar. we continue right-wing world after this. >> announcer: for ad for a game, call now. 1-800-steph-12.

this show many times. i've never seen him spew hateful rhetoric. >> you remember glenn beck, in his cnn days, he infamously suggested if ellison's loyalties were with the other site, you know talking about the war on terror, way back when. there's some reason -- there's just some weird reason the right wing is obsessed with i believe the lone muslim congressman in america. they just can't -- obsess about him. again, why did hannity -- was going to do his mccarthyism stuff, the deep associations, then why the you have him on your show? again, it proves why he doesn't have people who talk back to him on his show because then he has to spend the rest of the week cleaning up the mess he's made. >> stephanie: remember the right wing -- the republican -- i think running against keith ellison but was talking about building a wall keeping muslims out of america. he's from detroit.
what are you going to do? build a wall around detroit? charles on cavuto. >> the president won 50.98% of the vote. >> i thought it was 97. >> he acts like it is 98%. he's running around saying he's not a dictator. guess what. he acts like it sometimes. >> based on what? >> stephanie: yes right. >> you know, the whole idea is that, you know, elections are -- you're the barometer of everything unless you lose. then when you lose, electoral landslide by 132 electoral votes, suddenly it is not that big of a deal. we're so 50/50. we're not. if you look at the demographics. you look at what obama won, it was a route. but he's a dictator. george bush, you know, after he won re-election, he went on this huge push to privatize social
security. >> stephanie: giant mandate. >> he won by like two states. >> re-election should be in quotation marks. >> there's that. >> stephanie: but it's interesting because the president actually just said when people act like he could stop the sequester, he said i'm not a dictator. i can't make congress do the right thing. >> it is proof he's a dictator! >> it -- doesn't it prove everything? >> stephanie: mitt romney on fox news sunday. >> i wish i were there. it kills me not to be in the white house doing what needs to be done. the president is the leader of the nation. the president brings people together does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together. the president leaves and i don't see that kind of leadership happening. >> yeah, we see leadership. >> stephanie: oh please, mittens. >> you know, he was so forthful about how it is killing hip. ann romney talked about same thing. you know, as i pointed out he could barely fake interest in

knew our slummer party was going too late. reruns of the apprentice came on. donald trump is an idiot. >> i lost money at a casino. who else can do that. >> stephanie: jerry in seattle, you're on with hot brie. >> caller: hi. >> stephanie: hi. >> caller: i was going to say something about -- i thought the republicans were going to do everything cut the budget, save everything by taking care of loopholes. >> stephanie: yes. >> caller: wasn't that romney's plan? >> stephanie: they did not get around to that. >> caller: the president nails it. they would rather cut all of the stuff and cut one loophole for the rich. that's what this comes down to. gregory did have -- he briefly grew a tiny set. to ask boner you know, but he did, right? >> it was a good question. we got all excited. >> stephanie: boner's like we want -- tax reform.
republicans want tax reform. no, you don't! >> we want the poor to pay more taxes. that's tax reform right there. >> when he says for everyone, for everyone, we voted on this. you decided we wanted -- >> you can't get blood from a stone. >> stephanie: we voted on going back to the clinton tax rate which we didn't -- we're not even there yet. >> i don't know. weren't we doing really well economically back then? >> stephanie: yes, we were. b.j.s for everyone. >> what? >> huh? >> stephanie: b.j. and the bear. good shows were on then. >> vhs tapes. >> stephanie: stop looking at me like that. get the cottage cheese off your lip. 29 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show."

>> hi, guys, hello. >> he no, i'm wondering wondering why the president doesn't use the prime time tv address like other presidents have. i think this would be a -- >> stephanie: because he's never done one of those right? >> caller: i can only remember him breaking into tv live to announce bin laden's death really. but i think that if he went on tv and addressed the nation in prime time. >> stephanie: he just did -- okay. >> caller: basically, he doesn't need to name names but he could say listen, we have 18,000 corporations in the country that are using one address in the cayman islands to avoid paying taxes. we have one of the nation's largest banks he doesn't need to say bank of america everybody will be able to figure it out that made $400 million -- >> stephanie: i won't say which one. it is an american bank, a bank here in america. >> caller: i just think that a lot of -- even republican voters would be outraged if it they knew the extent of these loophole abuses. i mean -- and i really think the
republicans would go straight into retreat disappear for a week and they would come out and close some loopholes but i mean people -- the general knowledge of it is just not out there. people don't realize how much revenue we're losing through these loopholes. >> stephanie: he's on tv all the time. what are you saying? >> caller: when he's on, like i saw his address about this the other day. he's usually on in the morning and i guarantee you fox news never covers any of his press conferences because i checked. it is on cnn on msnbc, go to fox, it's not on. the information is not getting to the republican-voting base about exactly what their representatives are defending here. >> stephanie: are you saying no one pays attention to anything that's on tv in the morning? >> caller: i really think it is a matter of -- republican voters are being insulated from all of this stuff. >> stephanie: i hear you. i hear you. he does have a point. i like that he knocked donald trump off tv. the season finale of the
apprentice. not saying he did it on purpose. >> he could have fireside chat equivalents, getting his side of the argument out there to overrule david gregory and people like that. >> i think that would be great. however, everything he's done thus far the republicans are accusing him of campaigning on this. every time he speaks about it. you're campaigning. he's not running. >> he can't run for a third term. >> stephanie: freak out over michelle obama who is invited to -- give an oscar. >> first lady at the oscars? that's never ever, ever happened -- oh, wait! >> stephanie: president knocked whatever off the air. we missed 20 seconds of the kardashians because the president injects himself into everything. >> sadly, do we really feel -- >> honey boo-boo. >> stephanie: you miss honey boo-boo and that woman that looks like a thumb. >> her mother. >> mama june. >> stephanie: a thumb with lips. >> i've never seen it. >> stephanie: i did by accident. we'll show you the picture.
>> it burns it burns! >> stephanie: what were you going to say? >> i think i was going to say that do we really think that people are interested in facts anymore? or is it just that they want to hear from their team telling them what -- >> stephanie: ezra klein did a whole piece in "the washington post" -- uh-oh. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: honey boo-boo's mother. [ laughter ] see, that's why she's going to be a politician because someone that pretty is not allowed to say anything about anyone else. all she's going to do is say oh. i feel sorry for her that she's exploiting her child. i don't care about somebody's looks as well but exploiting your child like that. it seems like not a good thing for the child. >> stephanie: right. i was talking about ezra klein's piece about the facts -- they were saying oh, well, major republicans don't even know what the president has put on the
table including chained cpi. if he would do that. they're like he has done that. it is up on the web site. isn't it up on the web site in bold? >> whitehouse.gov. >> the computer. we can use a computer. >> if it is not on fox it ain't news. >> you can't make -- >> stephanie: why the president can't make a deal with the republicans. it doesn't matter what he proposes. he's already compromised and compromised. what's honey boo-boo's -- it is a little prostitutey. what's her slogan? give me a dollar and -- >> i'll make you holler. >> stephanie: did she steal that from tone loc? >> tone loc requires $50. >> someone on the scale of honey boo-boo, it is just a doral. >> i heard she has something she called go-go juice like mountain dew. >> it is mountain dew and red
bull mixed together. >> how old is she? >> i think she's like 7. that's not good for her little body. >> stephanie: no. >> but it makes her perform well on stage at the child pageants. >> not good. >> stephanie: you're someone who generally does not enjoy children on the plane. >> but, you know -- >> stephanie: you told a beautiful story. >> i was on an airplane going to d.c. on friday night and there was a child who was nonstop talking, crying, laughing, just nonstop. i couldn't believe it. >> stephanie: i used to hate screaming baby airlines until i flew chatty toddler and it is worse because they don't breathe. >> i couldn't believe it. this child has so much energy. what is his dad doing here? is he not calming him down? i was having hateful thoughts. afterwards, i was standing next to his dad and his dad told me i have to make this round trip flight every two months because he has two months with me and two months with my mom. it was a lesson for me because
